Winter Print Show with Greenwich Printmakers at Jack House Gallery

Greenwich Printmakers are back at Jack House Gallery this winter, and this time there’s even more of them! 21 artists working in a range of techniques, styles and genres will be exhibiting in this fabulous Winter Print show with 100s of fine art prints to select from if you are looking for a present for the art inclined. Prints for Presents kicks off with a private view on the 16th November (6pm to 8pm), before then running through to the 31st December.

Fine art printmaking is a wonderful and affordable route into collecting art whether it’s a limited edition etching, linoprint, lithograph or screenprint. Greenwich Printmakers Association are back in town after their hugely successful first show at the gallery just a few months after the gallery opened in 2015. 16 of their number exhibited over 100 very collectable, astonishingly affordable top hole fine art prints and this year 21 will participate. To see who’ll be taking part in this Winter Print Show look here.

3 Greenwich Printmakers on Print

Due to the great response to the talk that GPA artist Kit Boyd gave at the gallery in 2015 Jack House are to host an evening in which 3 members of the association have kindly agreed to come along and talk about their work and how they make it. Sally McKay works directly from observing dancers in movement producing deceptively simple and dynamic etchings. Bethany Marett works in various media and techniques sometimes using totally unlikely substances for her ‘ink’ and Christina France is the newest member of the association and makes dreamy abstract textured, layered pieces in quiet contrast to the work of Bethany and Sally. Each is working in different ways and with different stories to tell about their artistic lives. This event is free, there will be refreshments but only limited seating for those that need it. The talk event will be on Thursday 7th December 6.30 to 8.30pm.
